Areas to Support

Inclusive Collections Fund

Our Special Collections curators, librarians, and archivists are actively building and stewarding an important collection of rare and archival materials that document the experiences and histories of African American, LGBTQ+, immigrant, and other marginalized communities, with a special interest in groups that are local to Baltimore. Your gift will allow us to acquire, process, preserve, and digitize letters, manuscripts, periodicals, rare books, ephemera, and other primary source materials that document these under-represented histories, and make them available to students and researchers worldwide.

Curatorial Internships

The Department of Special Collections offer student opportunities to curate digital exhibitions that expand online access to our collections of rare books, manuscripts, photographs, ephemera, and institutional archives. Paired with a mentor for support and consultation, each intern is introduced to other work across the department and learns about how special collection libraries and major research libraries are organized and function.

Digital Course Materials

We continue to meet the heightened demand for digital materials by accelerating our digitization activities and working with faculty to acquire new digital scholarly content. Your gift will support many unanticipated expenses and help us connect Hopkins faculty and students with the digital resources they need for effective online teaching, learning, and research.
